No one likes a rainy weather forecast, but a seaside town in Belgium is so unhappy with its summer forecast that it's suing.

Tourism officials from Knokke-Heist say they received hundreds of cancellations from tourists after a private weather agency predicted bad weather in August.

The town's mayor, Leopold Lippens, defended their action:

"They made a forecast, saying that it would be bad weather in the 14th of August, and then five days good weather. And then again for one month, bad weather. I'd like to see NASA in United States giving the weather forecast for two months ahead. Everybody would laugh his head off."

Tourism officials say the forecast will cost them millions in lost revenue.
